Hit-Making Drummers to Perform at AMHOF on June 21 in Muscle Shoals

Tuscumbia, AL  – On June 21, 2014 at 10:00 A.M. the Alabama Music Hall of Fame will present “HOME: Honoring Occupations in Music Event.” This event will showcase Alabama’s world famous drummers.

The Alpha Mu Lambda Fraternity from the University of North Alabama will partner with the Hall of Fame by kicking off the HOME Event with an African Drum Circle. “These guys are so talented, and very involved with community projects. You will be amazed with the emotions you feel when they play their drums,” said Dixie Connell Griffin, museum manager.

“George Lair, chairman of the Hall of Fame volunteers, has put together a fantastic program honoring the accomplishments of these drummers from Alabama.” Griffin said. Sherri Clark from Kicks 96 will be on hand to emcee the event. The program will feature drummers: Roger Clark, Milton Sledge, Owen Hale, Mickey Buckins, and Be Bop Evans, who have drummed for decades in the Muscle Shoals Music Industry. They will discuss their careers, have an impromptu jam, and answer questions from the audience. These drummers have played with the biggest names in pop, rock and country music.

The cost for the event is $10.00. Everyone will be given a souvenir program and can enjoy a tour of the museum to see the new display honoring Alabama drummers.
